The San Antonio Rampage Sled Hockey Team was the first team to form that consists of all wounded military service members. The team is run by Operation Comfort, a non profit organization that works with wounded service members coming from Iraq and Afghanistan who are recovering at Brooke Army Medical Center in San Antonio, Texas.

The team is led by Lonnie Hannah, a two-time Paralympian who was named USA Hockey’s 2009 Disabled Athlete of the Year. Hannah helped the United States Sledge Hockey Team capture the gold medal in Salt Lake City in 2002 and a bronze medal in 2006 in Torino. He most recently helped Team USA to its first-ever gold medal at the 2009 International Paralympic Committee Ice Sledge Hockey World Championship.

The Rampage Sled Hockey Team was formed in January 2007. Operation Comfort presented the team with sleds donated from their organization and the San Antonio Rampage of the American Hockey League (AHL) outfitted the sled hockey team with equipment and jerseys. The Rampage (AHL) continues to host various fundraising events, including their annual Military Appreciation Night, to raise money to support the Rampage Sled Hockey Team. The sled hockey team started with seven players and has quickly gained popularity in which the team now consists of more than 15 players. The team began playing in tournaments in 2008 and has since traveled to Illinois, Utah, New York, Massachusetts, Missouri and throughout Texas.
